Google Slide like most Google products focuses on simplicity and functionality. And this is certainly reflected in how the controls are laid out. It certainly lacks some of the bells and whistles that some of its competitors have but is still effective in producing clean and simple presentations. Those familiar or have used Google’s other productivity tools will have no problems using its simple functions and friendly layout.
One of the best things going for Google Slide is that the service and all its features is completely free. All it requires is a Google account which is needed when downloading the software.
